How to Change Siri’s Voice

Siri’s default voice settings sound pretty good. Reasonably friendly, calm, and even jokey at times. In some countries, Siri is a ‘she’, in others a ‘he’, but did you know it is possible to change the ‘sex’ of Siri on your device, and even the accent if you so desire?

Siri Language Settings

To change Siri’s voice on the iPhone or iPad:

  • Open Settings
  • Scroll down to Siri and Search
  • Tap on the ‘Siri Voice’ option
  • Choose the appropriate accent and gender

You can also change the language - with a striking amount of English variations - which is useful if you have a particularly strong accent.

Note that if you do make a change to the language, you’ll need to go through the ‘Hey Siri’ setup steps again, as he/she will need to relearn your voice.

Changing Siri’s Voice on macOS

You also have the option to change Siri’s voice and language settings on macOS (macOS Sierra upwards) too.
